Talk Nation Radio: Highway Boondoggles Bypass Budget Crunch


Published May 8, 2013
Topics highways


Randy "Salz" Salzman is a transportation writer and researcher and the author of Fatal Attraction: Curbing Our Love Affair With the Automobile Before it Kills Us. 
He discusses how highway construction boondoggles that are bad for
health, heritage, the environment, and even the flow of traffic, have
survived in these times of cramped public budgets.  In particular,
Salzman looks at the example of a proposed highway in Charlottesville,
Va., opposed by the public but rolling ahead toward unsafe, destructive,
and ridiculously expensive construction.
